My Thoughts:

I’ve discovered a new favorite author. This is my first Kiersten White
book, but it certainly won’t be my last. This book was everything I love
about the young adult fantasy genre. It was full of magic, friendship,
romance, and suspense. It was very clean, too. Other than a few
instances of mild innuendo, there was nothing objectionable in the book.

I love horrid bad guys in books, and this one was as awful as they come.
I loved the twist at the end! I didn’t see it coming.

Illusions of Fate is an imaginatively magical adventure that left me wanting more. I sincerely hope that there will be a sequel.

Content: Some non-descriptive violence and mild innuendo.
